What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Seminoma?
Living a full, healthy, and happy life — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your disease and the holistic cancer treatments available to you.
Seminoma is a germ cell tumor that develops most commonly in the male testicle, and more rarely, in the mediastinum — a division of the thoracic cavity, which contains the heart, thymus gland, portions of the esophagus and trachea — and other extra-gonadal locations in the body. With a survival rate above 95 percent, this malignant (cancerous) neoplasm is among the most treatable and curable cancers, if detected early.
What are the Subtypes of Seminoma?
The cancer care team here at New Hope Unlimited specializes in a combination of conventional and alternative treatments for the three histologic subtypes of seminoma:
Classic seminomas comprise a monotonous sheet of seminoma cells, large cells containing a clear cytoplasm, and a hyperchromatic nucleus.
Marked nuclear pleomorphism and higher mitotic (cell division) rates than classic seminomas are the distinctive characteristics of anaplastic seminomas.
Spermatocytic seminomas feature cells that resemble secondary spermatocytes and spermatids. This subtype of seminoma mostly occurs among elderly men, although the prognosis is excellent in most cases.
What are the Signs of Seminoma?
The most common symptoms of seminoma include:
- A lump or mass in the affected area
- Testicular atrophy
- Pain and discomfort
- Elevated levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), a tumor marker
- Elevated levels of the hormone beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG)
- Low back pain, which may signal cancer spreading to the abdominal cavity
What Caused Your Cancer?
The underlying cause of seminoma is unknown. However, a number of scientists are presuming that seminomas arise from an embryonic germ cell leading to testicular intraepithelial neoplasia (the precursor to classical seminoma).
There are two known risk factors for the development of testicular seminomatous germ cell tumors:
- Increasing age, starting between 30 to 40 years old
- Cryptorchidism or the absence of one or both testes from the scrotum
How Do Doctors Diagnose Seminoma?
Early detection further establishes the generally positive prognosis for seminoma. A doctor may perform a series of diagnostic tests to produce accurate findings, including but not limited to:
- Testicular examination
- Blood laboratory studies
- Removing a sample tissue for testing
A diagnostician may also conduct the following imaging studies to further evaluate the area of concern:
- Computerized tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
If you receive a seminoma diagnosis, the next most critical step is to plan your treatment.
